A medical home is an approach to providing comprehensive primary care that facilitates partnership between patients, physicians, and families. Pediatric Partners, along with the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), believes that every child deserves a medical home, where care is accessible, continuous, comprehensive, patient- and family-centered, coordinated, compassionate, and culturally effective. We are also very proud to be the only NCQA Recognized Practice for our NCQA behavioral module integration in the entire state of Florida.
Behavioral Health Services
Pediatric Partners offers an in house psychotherapist & developmental specialist for our families. Our therapists specialize in age appropriate developmental evaluations, parenting concerns, behavioral and psychological issues, adolescent support, ADHD and other school related concerns. Individual and group sessions are offered.
Pediatric Partners understands that the typical exam room experience can be stressful for some children. That is why we carefully created our ‘Sensory Room’ to accommodate children who might not feel safe in a typical room. The Sensory Room contains adaptable lighting, music and visual cue cards that can be used to put children at ease. Shades can be raised or lowered on the windows to the patient’s preference. The non-traditional examination beds and comfortable seating can make the exam experience less stressful for children and their caregivers.
The primary care and health challenges of adolescents differ distinctly from those of children and adults. Our interdisciplinary team is experienced in attending to the physical, emotional and social needs of people from puberty though young adulthood. We provide consultation, diagnosis and treatment for health issues that commonly come up during these years.
Care for Chronically ill Children
We are experienced in the collaborative care of complex, chronically ill patients of all ages throughout the various stages of illness.

Acne and Accutane - Acne is a very common, highly visible disease that can cause embarrassment, self-consciousness, and social withdrawal.

We are dedicated to treating acne and preventing acne scar formation. We may recommend a combination of topical medications and oral medications including oral antibiotics or birth control pills, or in extreme cases, Accutane.

Ear lobe piercing is widely desired, but very few places provide this service in a medical setting. Infections and poor placement are common when done by non-medical and inexperienced personnel. Our office provides a safe and hygienic alternative to mall kiosks and tattoo shops. We offer this service to children of any age, including infants.
Simple Laceration Repair
We have the ability to close simple wounds through the use of glue, staples, or suturing. A simple laceration does not require a trip to the ER or urgent care center. We always recommend letting one of our providers take a look first.
